Workplace woes...

One of my co-workers just got let go.

Formerly in a company of over 1000 people, you never even noticed things like that, because it could be weeks before you realized you hadn't seen someone around for a while.

In an office of 15 employees, the impact is quite a bit more significant.

Especially when he works in the office right behind me.

Holy shit. That was upsetting.

Now I'm feeling kinda morose about the life expectancy of my own position, cuz the guy they let go was a permanent employee. I'm just a temp consultant on a short term contract.

Ah, well. Que Será Será.

I still love you.

And, you butthead, those pics you just posted from this summer made me miss you.

*kicks in shin*

Hoser. But I mean that with the utmost respect and love.

Yeah, that's pretty much the norm and not the exception these days.

They let Don's brother go (from Top Producer) without much ceremony after 7 years.

Have you been with these guys long enough to qualify for E. I.?

You may be more affordable, because they pay you less, without benefits.

I know what you are talking about. The school I was working before was small, only 70 teachers - you knew everybody and everything. If somebody was sick or had problems you noticed it.
Now at my technical school we are up to 250 teachers with small rooms of 6 - you maybe have an idea how those are doing but not the rest of your coworkers. most of the time the kids tell me the "big" news ...
